Cass is tired of keeping his past a secret.  When he begins seeing the ghost of his dead mate, Cass knows he has no choice but to take off.  Going home to pack he runs into Logan, his other mate and completely falls apart. 

Cheetah in Charge is book six in the Purrfect Mates series.  This story is a complete turnaround from the last story.  Whereas the mating and relationship in Kitty in the Middle went so smoothly, Cheetah in Charge is dark and full of angst.  Cass is dealing with the death of his mate, something he feels responsible for.  Keeping the tragedy a secret from his family has caused Cass to reach his breaking point.  When both his mates show up at the same time, Cass goes over the edge.  I wondered how the author planned to introduce Cass’s mates when one is supposedly dead.  The way Merrick is introduced worked perfectly, although it also opens the door for more problems.  Logan is just as much of a problem as Merrick.  When Logan and Cass first meet, the vampire has a boyfriend, leaving Cass feeling even more rejected.   

These three men have a lot of issues in front of them and, at times, it looks as if there is no happy ending in sight.  I like that the author allowed Cass to go through his grief the way she did.  The misunderstandings that Logan, Cass and Merrick must overcome has to take second fiddle to the ongoing problems with the hunters.  The author also throws in some new twists, opening the door for some interesting new characters. 

While the next book in the series is not centered around the Cowells, there are several more brothers looking for mates so I hope this gang will be back again.
